I loved the art style each section looked like a painting 🎨 story was too short and simple

Interesting little comic, rather like a script for the show than true comic book form.

I love all of these characters so much. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I'm a rather devoted fan of the How To Train Your Dragon franchise and I've watched all the shows and movies countless of times, which is why I've moved on to the comics next. I want to read as much about all of these characters as I possibly can

Dreamworks first venture into the graphic novel business brings us the continuing adventures of Hiccup and his friends in the How To Train Your Dragon universe. Written by Scott Furman, with pencils by Iwan Nazif, coloring by Nestor Pereyra and Digikore, and lettering by David Manley-Leach, Dreamworks made a wise marketing decision in choosing this series to start with. Not only was the movie a money maker, it was very good and I very much look forward to seeing the second. I understand this com ...more
As a diehard fan of How To Train Your Dragon, of course I had to pick this up once I realized it was in my library's digital collection. I'll read the others, too - but let's be honest here: the storytelling quality is on par with Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk, not the core canon movies. This volume is a pretty straightforward RoB episode plot, with no twists and turns, and so it never really ascends above average. (And yeah, yeah, I'm not the target audience, I know.)

The art is cute, tho

The Riders of Berk graphic novels allow readers to continue to enjoy the world of DreamWorks Dragons. While there are some canonical inconsistencies in the artwork of the comics (Hiccup frequently has blue eyes, Astrid green eyes, and Hiccup is shown holding a pencil in his right hand for several panels in the third graphic novel), overall these books are enjoyably drawn with enjoyable stories. I would recommend them to any HTTYD fan of any age who wants another story of Hiccup and his gang.

A comic version, even though it's considered a graphic novel, of Dragon stories. Alvin the Treacherous shows up in these for the first time that I know if... and he looks nothing like he should, and that was annoying. Though in actuality, Fishlegs doesn't look anything like he is supposed to, but I find that doesn't bother me as much. And this might be perhaps that my first experience with Fishlegs was the movies so that is just what he looks like to me, even though he's a gangling skinny kid wi ...more

I love Dragons and this was a fun read, especially since this is a comic book. I like the fact it is based off the TV show yet isn't just a copy of one of the episodes but a story of itself of friendship and standing up for those you care about, even if it could be dangerous. The story was good but it didn't engage me enough which is why I rated it as I did. Yet, it was good enough (and I like Dragon enough) that I will be getting the next book in the series.

Short and sweet; has all the spirit of the much loved film and television series :'). Hookfang, Snotlout's Monstrous Nightmare is again the centre of attention in this graphic novel; the plot is similar to a few episodes of Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk, but dragon fans will still love it all the same!.

I never thought there'll be a comic book based on my favorite film and TV series. Now I look forward reading the next volume.

That was weird. Hiccup looked like a 12 year old girl and Alvin looked like Stoick but with a bigger beard and a different helmet. I love How To Train Your Dragon, but this was kind of disappointing.

I love How to Train Your Dragon, so I had to check out this new series of graphic novels based on the TV show. It was a cute story, but I wish it were longer!

While I love the books more than the show, the movie is pretty good and this graphic novel based on the show is fun and entertaining but too short.
